Imagine all the symptoms of Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson's , Epilepsy and more. All in one little girl. That is as powerful a statement as we can make it. Lately as my child gets older there have been a few things I want to discuss with many of you so instead of pulling you aside one at a time I am going to put it in writing so you won't forget. Things you are not allowed to ask me, say or discuss with me as her mother. I'm all into awareness and education but really people. Take your ignorance elsewhere. 1. What is her prognosis? F off. That's her prognosis. What I hear is, Is she gonna die or when is she going to die . It's a thought that I live with 24/7 and wake up to every morning, I don't wish to discuss it with you. Di\o you Muggles actually discuss this shit? i mean I had / have a normal child too and I don't remember anyone ever wanting to know when and if he was going to die or if I thought hes ever be better than he is. 2.Do you think she knows where she's at? Ummm. She can see. She can hear. She just heard you say that and yes. How many times do I have to tell you her brain is intact? It's the connection between her brain and body that you don't get? And y'all act like she's the slow one. 3. What's wrong with your girl? Her Mom takes her to places where idiots ask stupid, insensitive questions. 4. Does she have her period yet? What? Do you have yours? Do you really friggen ask people this? Here's the thing. Don't ever talk to me about this unless you are another Special needs parents of a girl and you need advice . This is the one and only time it is acceptable. While you Muggles get to celebrate a life's passage we get to mourn another thing our child will never get to do. Do you think we can tell her she's a woman now and give her the baby speech? No. No babies. No grandchildren . None of your business. Once again f off. 5. Oh look she remembers me. Really like a dog at your Granny's ? Amazing isn't she? We'd have her do tricks if it wasn't for the stupid wheelchair and no control of her body. TAH DAH! 6. She's always so happy . I don't know how with everything ...well you know... No I don't know you stupid cow. She's happy because she is loved. She is the center of her universe . Her world DOES revolve around her. Who wouldn't be. Assholes. 7.She's sure noisy for a non verbal kid . You're sure an asshole. Why don't you tell her to shut up or be quiet when she is expressing herself the only way she's able. Or how bout this? Get up with your perfect strong legs and leave if you don't like it. 8. I don't know how you do it or I couldn't do it. OMG! seriously! You couldn't take care of your own child? You couldn't look into your own eyes that look to you for everything and do everything you could every day all day? Wow. Just wow. 9. She seems a bit lazy. Ummm. Because she can't stand or sit on her own? Because she can't walk more than a step without falling? Or because her teachers have been holding up 2 cards for 9 years asking her which ones pink and which ones blue and expect her to still be interested ? Enlighten me. Knower of all things! 10. Do you ever wish you hadn't had her?
Drop kick to the face. Your face. I picture it every time. One day I'm gonna do it.
